At least thirteen people were killed when two car bombs and a suicide attacker struck a grocery market in Iraq, according to local officials.

The attack happened in the predominantly Shia Jadidat al-Shatt, 40 km north of Baghdad.

It is the latest in a string of almost daily attacks in Iraq, raising fears over a rise in the level of sectarian violence.

Just three weeks ago 41 people were killed when twin car bombs went off outside a Sunni mosque in Baquba.
